In many ways, Top Dragster presented by Racing RVs.com stole the show at Indy with a record 32-car field qualified between a 6.100 (the quickest allowable elapsed time) and a 6.234 by past Super Comp world champion Al Kenny. All but two of the qualifiers were over 220-mph and it took a 6.132 to make the top half of the show. The final round featured six-time Indy winner and seven-time world champ Peter Biondo and Rusty Baxter, who was appearing in his first national event final. Biondo, looking to join Jeg Coughlin Jr. with a win in a seventh-different class, crossed the finish line first, but lost in a double-breakout.
